Losing Weight Takes Time Takes Patience

I joined SparkPeople on 10/20/09 and have tracked my food intake and rarely ever exceeded the 1550 calories per day with the exception of the holidays themselves of course. Plus I 've regularly exercised 4-5 times per week. I have lost 21 pounds in 12 weeks or an average of 1 & 3/4 pounds per week. Perhaps that's typical especially for someone 58, I don't know. What I do know is that I'm not necessarily disappointed in losing 21 pounds especially considering it probably took me over ...
I joined SparkPeople on 10/20/09 and have tracked my food intake and rarely ever exceeded the 1550 calories per day with the exception of the holidays themselves of course. Plus I 've regularly exercised 4-5 times per week. I have lost 21 pounds in 12 weeks or an average of 1 & 3/4 pounds per week. Perhaps that's typical especially for someone 58, I don't know. What I do know is that I'm not necessarily disappointed in losing 21 pounds especially considering it probably took me over year to 2 years to gain that much maybe more. Anyway, I'd be a liar if I didn't say I sure wish the pounds would come off faster. However, I'll gladly settle on this same rate for the next 30 pounds I want to lose, if I can avoid hitting a plateau like so many others report. If that should happen I'm hoping Sparkpeople will help me through that battle too. I really like reading SP blogs and am going to try to do better at perhaps blogging myself.
